|Wimsey Cove Maps: As of January 1, 2015, Wimsey Cove Maps & Art, formerly located in West Annapolis, has moved to Wimsey Cove Framing & Art. The entire inventory of historical maps and bird's eye views and related giftware is available at the new location.
Wimsey Cove Maps & Art was a "pop-up" store before such things were thought of. Maps were first offered ten years ago at various street fairs and bazaars, including First Sunday on West Street, Oktoberfest in West Annapolis, and at meetings and conferences, including Archaeology Day at the Maryland Historical Trust. From July to December 2011, Maps & Art was located in the Market House on City Dock in Annapolis. In March of 2013, we opened the store in West Annapolis and continued being a vendor at many Maryland events. This time, we are moving the map business into its parent store, Wimsey Cove Framing & Art, while we look for new opportunities to "pop-up." Notice of sale locations, inventory of maps, and special events can be found here and our FaceBook pages. Please come visit us.
Wimsey Cove Framing and Art is a locally owned
and operated quality custom residential and corporate art frame
gallery that specializes in shadow boxes, photography and historical
maps of cities and states.
Wimsey Cove is located
in Edgewater, South Anne Arundel County MD just 2/10ths of a
mile south of Mayo Road across from the old Giant Food just south
of Annapolis, Maryland.
Local Maryland artists and photographers
have limited edition prints on display at Wimsey Cove to purchase
The owner, Elizabeth Ramirez, a watercolor artist, has 18 years in the picture frame industry as well as a degree in Studio Art from Rivier College in New Hampshire. Elizabeth has also taught arts and crafts in summer camps and given short courses in various framing techniques.
She strives to provide a friendly, family-oriented shop where we can
work together to find the art and/or frames that fit your décor
while focusing on fine art, original photography, original etchings,
and reproductions of historic maps and prints.
A very unique part of her business is “Bella’s
Corner” where children can play while parents are picking
out the art, photos, mats, and framing they are looking for. This
corner is named for Isabella, Elizabeth’s daughter.
Features of this corner include toys, games, and DVDs for your children
